Left Douglas Daly Tourist Park and travelled through Katherine on the way to Timber Creek. Stopped at Victoria River Roadhouse to photograph the Victoria River then continued to Timber Creek for petrol. We decided to look for a camp site on the road and shortly after reaching the milestone of 10,000 km on the road we found a track leading to a dry pan about 45km west of Timber Creek. We had the place to ourselves and had supper by candle light under the stars. After dinner we built a campfire and lay on our backs on a picnic blanket beside the fire sipping champagne gazing at a pitch black sky with a very bright Milky Way spread from one horizon to the other.
